    The more disturbing thing is that you, A) notice she's wearing clogs and B) know the brand of clog.
    The Bundy is strong in this one.

    Freaking idiots on here. The luggage is just fine. They cut weight by not wearing gear and proper helmets, and even shared headphones so that the rear suspension wasn't overloaded. :cool:

    That's a sporty, they're right around ten grand, figure 500 for the handlebars, and another 300 for the sissy bar.

    Unless he is a really lost Brit, Kiwi, Jap or other left laner, there is simply no excuse for this idiocy. His lean angle is probably not bad,....for the right lane!! My guess is he totally botched the turn just prior and is now trying to make up for it. Pretty sad state of affairs. Yet, he probably feels he is a good rider. Proof that fellow BMW riders can be just as much a dolt as the cruiser boys. ATGATT gets you little splattered across the hood of a Buick.

    or he's like some who've posted here who think they have to/are entitled to cut the corners "so they can go faster"

    it's a crooked road
    crooked roads are more fun than straight roads
    why go to a crooked road and try to straighten it out by cutting corners?
    try riding within your abilities AND the limits of your lane

    looks like OCALA on the plate frame? can't see the state :dunno

    More like $7k - $8k. But, really… who cares? Certainly not the couple on the Sportster 883…

    They're just passing through and trying to get from point A to point B by the looks of things.

    AS someone else noted, these are the real Failures… you know, the idiots that are more likely to kill someone else.

    How much you spent on gear doesn't make you a better rider… it just gives you a false sense of security, or is that superiority? I get the two confused in certain crowds.

    You know... I can't imagine none of us "YER OVA DA LINE YA LOSER" safety nazis have ever fucked up and gone over the centerlines... ever...

    I know I have... I remember quite clearly one fine spring day in southeastern OH coming around an inside curve and seeing that some fine automobile pilot had kindly cut the curve and scattered heavy gravel all over the curve. Since I was going waaay too fast for conditions whilst trying to keep the tailights of the rocketship in front of me in sight (who had successfully picked the perfect track through the minefield and didnt touch a single piece of gravel) by the time I recovered my beast I was about two inches from the white line ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD.

    Pucker factor of 11.

    I know that corner, having done the exact same thing. Not an experience I care to repeat!

    There's a little difference between running wide because "Oh crap, something's in the road" and completely cutting a left to the shoulder.

    This.

    I don't think any rider can say that they haven't run wide before. However, what we tend to see on 129 is riders that run wide consistently and intentionally. They aren't equipped with the skills to ride a road like that properly, but yet they insist on showing up to ride it poorly with no attempt made to improve their skills.

    I certainly grant this and RDTCU's comment... Many who come to the dragon and other "famous" roads are ill equipped to deal. Just sayin' no one's perfect and sometimes you have the lousy luck to have someone capture your less than perfect moment for all eternity. I can just imagine the hoots and howls that I would be enduring had that moment been caught on video...

    Now back to the "fail shaming". :D

    This :nod

    But there are those who feel it's perfectly ok to regularly cut the corners.

    I see them back home in cars and trucks every day :eek

    Posted this before, this is from October. I think he actually hit the speed limit 2 or 3 times, the rest of the time he was doing this, to the point that I didn't feel safe passing him...
